The best in wurst from around the world, with enough sausage-themed stories and pictures stuffed between these two covers to turn anyone into a forcemeat aficionado.
Lucky Peach presents a cookbook as a scrapbook, stuffed with curious local specialties, like cevapi, a caseless sausage that’s traveled all the way from the Balkans to underneath the M tracks in Ridgewood, Queens; a look into the great sausage trails of the world, from Bavaria to Texas Hill Country and beyond; and the ins and outs of making your own sausages, including fresh chorizo.
“[A] smart and righteously pun-heavy tubesteak travelogue and taxonomy” —The Wall Street Journal
“The follow-up to last year’s terrific Lucky Peach Presents 101 Easy Asian Recipes is just as satisfying, entertaining, and focused. This time, the editors of the quirky and brilliant food journal focus on sausage in all its incarnations… [T]he team has done a great favor for the world’s carnivores.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
“If your idea of fun is making merguez from scratch while you read what Noma chef Rene Redzepi thinks about Copenhagen hot dog stands, this is the book for you. It is both highly informative and highly entertaining, with enough inside baseball and pop culture references to keep you on your toes.” —Los Angeles Times, “Cookbook of the Week”
“[I]t’s the quality of the writing that hooks you, and is the book’s real attraction. These writers know their stuff and know to wear their knowledge lightly and elegantly.” —Los Angeles Review of Books
